Description

Who We Are


The Institute for Sustainable Communities (ISC), founded in 1991, is a climate organization with a mission to create equitable climate change solutions worldwide. We do this by forming collaborative, people-focused partnerships that support communities disproportionately impacted by the global climate crisis. For over 30 years, ISC has utilized a unique, bottom-up approach to ensure solutions emerge from within communities rather than being imposed outside. Our projects focus on disinvested communities throughout the world, with specific attention paid to the impact systemic racism and gender inequity have had in communities, workforces, and industrial sectors as they move toward a just transition. 

Through a deep understanding of and commitment to communities that are the least likely to cause global climate change yet face the highest impacts, ISC develops creative and inclusive solutions, demonstrated in our work in the US and Asia. We seek resiliency for our partners and the communities in which they lead. We actively partner with frontline organizations, subnational governments, and the private sector to co-create programs that support disinvested communities, women, and people experiencing poverty who comprise the global majority. ISC remains cognizant of communities' varying needs, and we tailor our approach to support those needs. We believe equity and inclusion are fundamental to building healthy, prosperous, and peaceful communities and are committed to furthering equitable climate action. Learn more at sustain.org.
